Scanned from the Taylorology library. True Detective Mysteries began publication in 1924, similar in format to True Story, also published by McFadden. The "True" in both titles was false advertising; most of the stories were simply fiction and illustrated using posed models. True Detective Mysteries switched primarily to true crime articles by 1930. This issue is from 1926 when most of the magazine's content was clearly fiction.
